Audited accounts for 2008 revealed a 33 per cent increase in sales with turnover topping GBP 294 million - and last year's figure is set to show further significant growth. 


Other companies featured in this year's list include household names such as Harrods, Selfridges and Arsenal Football Club. 


Together, the 250 companies on the Sunday Times list generate turnover of £65.2 billion, equivalent to about 5 per cent of Britain's GDP, and employ more than 515,000 people.
